A malfunctioning analog transmitter at KMIZ/ABC 17 has left many viewers without a signal since Sunday.
Engineers at KMIZ are working to correct the problem and hope to have it fixed as soon as possible, said Randy Wright, KMIZ-TV vice president and general manager.
The majority of the market, fed by a digital signal, was not affected by the malfunction
Wright said the analog transmitter is something that has been in need of replacing since the station was taken over by new management last year.
“We hope to replace the analog transmitter within a week or so to help ensure that this type of problem will not happen again, but it is a major project,” Wright said.
The station hopes to have the new transmitter working in two to three months, he said.
